Coolpad Dazen 1 – yet another budget device [Executive Review]

The Coolpad Dazen 1 is going on sale today (June 9th) on Snapdeal from 12:00 pm. It is a flash sale and registrations have already closed. So if you have already registered or planing to buy it on the next sale date, here is my thoughts on the mobile. It is a budget device pegged at a segment which has the most intensive competition.

Here are the key specifications of Coolpad Dazen 1

  • 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 quad core processor
  • Adreno 306 GPU
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 5 Inch Display
  • 8 MP primary camera with LED flash
  • 5 MP Secondary Camera

The Coolpad Dazen 1 is a decent mobile, but it faces severe competition. In most dimensions the competitors outwit the Dazen 1. If you are not a fan of Micromax or Xiaomi, then you can buy the Dazen 1. I am sure the purchase decision is not something that will disappoint you. For a regular day to day usage, the Dazen 1 is a perfect device and it will fall short only when you push it to the limits. It could play most of the games with ease, except for the graphically intense ones. If you decide to buy, better buy a 32 GB memory card as well. The 8 GB is insufficient and also don’t expect brilliant photographs in low light conditions. Let me know if you have any other questions and ill figure it out for you.
